Systems Science Symposium: The Social Network: A Systems Approach to #ChildhoodObesity
How social networks and environments converge to influence child weight, behavior and health.

We increasingly realize that, as an epidemic, obesity results from a complex network of factors, particularly within social constructs. Join us as we examine the relationship between obesity and social systems—and the vital role these systems can play in prevention.
